14-15 Season

Final Weekend for the Best Christmas Pageant Ever

Over 3700 people have seen or are planning to see The Best Christmas Pageant Ever at the Crighton. By week's end The Best Christmas Pageant will be the highest attended show at the Crighton in the past 7 years. Merry Christmas to the Crighton!

So what? Are you kidding!? Most theatres in the greater Houston area could have sellout crowds all weekend and not have as many patrons as we do at a single performance. Yet we don't do theatre to simply get a large number of patrons. Our mission is to support the historic Crighton Theatre. STAGE RIGHT succeeds at this mission by putting on the best show we can that appeals to the largest number of people. We strive to present the best show possible. At the end of the day we know we must be a good corporate citizen and support not only the arts in Montgomery County but all non-profits that serve our community.

A heartfelt thanks to all our patrons who help us to support the Crighton. Thanks for bringing personal care products to support the Salvation Army. And by all means, come to see the Best Christmas Pageant Ever before it's too late!

In case you don't get to come to the show, check out our production photos.

Opening Weekend for The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

The cast of the Best Christmas Pageant Ever have worked hard to prepare for the opening weekend despite seasonal illnesses that have gripped the cast and crew. Nevertheless, they were rewarded as 1100 patrons came to opening weekend.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is about a group of unruly kids that discover the true meaning of Christmas. What a lovely reminder as we proceed into the holiday season where it is easy to forget the meaning of the season. Bring some personal hygiene items to benefit the Salvation Army and enjoy the show!

Singin’ in the Rain is based on the MGM film with screenplay by Betty Comden and Adolph Green and songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed. 1920's Hollywood is the setting for this zany, light-hearted romantic comedy about the early days of sound film, when many a movie studio found itself scrambling to salvage the career of its chipmunk-voiced silent picture star.

Shrek the Musical

Featuring all new songs as well as cult Shrek anthem I’m a Believer, SHREK THE MUSICAL brings all the much-loved DreamWorks characters to life, live on stage, in an all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza. Join the adventure!

The Trip to Bountiful

The Trip to Bountiful tells the story of an elderly woman, Carrie Watts, who wants to return home to the small town where she grew up, but is frequently stopped from leaving Houston, Texas by her daughter-in-law and an overprotective son who will not let her travel alone.

Old Mrs. Watts is determined to outwit her son and bossy daughter-in-law, and sets out to catch a train, only to find that trains do not go to Bountiful anymore. She eventually boards a bus to a town near her childhood home. On the journey, she befriends a girl traveling alone and reminisces about her younger years and grieves for her lost relatives. Her son and daughter-in-law eventually track her down, with the help of the local police force. However, Mrs. Watts is determined. The local sheriff, moved by her yearning to visit her girlhood home, offers to drive her out to what remains of Bountiful. The village is deserted, and the few remaining houses are derelict. Mrs. Watts is moved to tears as she surveys her father's land and the remains of the family home. Despite her disappointment, her spirit is renewed and she returns to Houston.
